's a pro-gun guy. we have senator harry reid, pro gun guy who is the majority leader of the senate and john boehner, the house is squarely going to deliver all of this right at harry reid's feet. what do senate democrats who are pro-gun do? and is that the easiest achilles heel for those on the right to target them? >> well, that's exactly right, thomas. i think the biggest problem for the president and his gun agenda will be harry reid and all the senate democrats up for reelection next time around. i think what john boehner and the house republicans are going to say is we'll take this up as soon as the senate passes it. and i would guarantee you that it's going to be very difficult to get this through the senate. senator reid has not come out four square behind the president's proposals. my guess is he won the -- his last election chiefly because he got the nra's endorsement. he's not going to necessarily want to turn his back. because if he does turn his back on the nra. and not just about the nra. i would say the nra has done a very good job of delegitimatizing itself with these ads. bu
. but it will be in a piecemeal way. it all comes down to the senate majority leader harry reid over there, he has been acting to protect a dozen or so democrats. in state -- in the 2014 the terms and if he's acting hesitantly, that's a sign that he's concerned about the politics of this. >> there are some things that are not different this time. one is obviously the opposition of the nra, they say this is about banning your guns period. the president of the nra, david keen had this to say today. >> they have a good deal to fear. they have to fear the establishment of the national registry, you know in the last few days, senator from california and the governor of new york has suggested that one of their goals is what they call a forced buy back. that's basically confiscation. >> the message is that this is a slippery slope. and going back to your point about the more moderate democrats that have to be won over, is it clear -- >> it's really not fair yesterday, exactly what they will be willing to vote. some areas where i think even moderate democrats would be willing to dismiss the nra's opinion. we have hea
democrats. one of them happens to be harry reid. you know the man who the president would be reliant upon to get something significant through the senate -- >> 1994 and 2004 he has a b rating from the nra. that is higher than almost anyone. this amazing fact. he has received more money from the nra than any senate democrat. when it comes to harry reid and the nra it is a close relationship. >> kind of a love affair. he appeared with wayne lappier in 2010. he is a guy who says i am going to go with my party. so will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is going to try to quarterback what he can. at the end of the day harry reid is a very practical politician. he said i will do what i can to move this forward and everything is on the table. here is the real deal. the part about pragmatism. in 2014 there are a half dozen democrats who don't need an assault weapons ban attack. states like arkansas, louisiana, montana. that is all going to play into factors. it will be interesting to see whether the tide has turned. some polls show at least on some options 89% of republicans sup
majority leader harry reid says if the house pass a clean debt ceiling incress, the senate will be happy to consider it. jay carney at the white house called for passing a clean debt limit deal without delay. leading republicans are saying without a budget that includes a real plan to reduce the deficit, the nation faces the threat of a credit downgrade. bret? >> bret: mike, thank you. sticking with the tet and deficit issues, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are talking about what to do in a worse case scenario. the government not having enough money to pay its bills. chief political correspondent carl cameron reports on a possible short-term solution that is getting a long look by some people. >> with the white house refusing to negotiate spending cuts and the democrat controlled senate unlikely to pass a budget as part of a long-term deal to raise the tet ceiling, pat toomey of pennsylvania is reintroducing legislation he says will avert the u.s. from defaulting on the debt. >> we must prioritize three categories of payments. one would be debt service, interest on the debt so we w
of harry reid who today called the president's plan thoughtful but did not commit to acting on it. >> a spokesman putting out tepid statement saying they will review the recommendations from the president. they have a major showdown on his hands. >> bret: suicide bombers blew up the vehicle today in three expleasure in syrian city and 22 people were killed there. they forced them to find makeshift shelter in the caves and ruins. tonight we get a first look at someone who may have been behind last september's deadly assault on a u.s. diplomatic outpost in libya. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge shows us the pictures and a story of an investigation that does not appear to be going anywhere. >> these images with extremist group and long-standing ties to al-qaeda showed one of the key suspect in the 9/11 benghazi terrorist attack. after tunisian authority cited lack of evidence. >> a lot of groups are embolden after benghazi and series of misstep by the american government trying to investigate what happened in benghazi. >> detained by the turkish authorities in oct
've made harry reid, we have, not democrats, we've made harry reid the majority leader again. we just got to start playing smafrter. >> a better candidate than sharon engel. his polls were terrible. joe, let me say something else. i worked for reagan, okay. reagan was a big tent guy. he was inclusive. in his administration we had moderate republicans, we had conservative republicans, we had supply siders like myself, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. can we go back to reagan's model, can we open up the party a little bit. you know what i'm thinking about particularly. this whole issue about immigration, latino, african-americans, young people, joe the whole party is missing a whole demonstrato graphic in this country? >> no doubt about it. one of my biggest criticisms about mitt romney over the past couple of years i never really thought he understood freeman or thatcher or reagan because if you do get it, if you understand what you understand at your gut level, what i understand and many other conservatives, free market conservatives get, that is that what we believe in conservatism appli
and nevada. the home state of the senate democratic leader harry reid who it is significant today basically said the president's proposals were today in his words thoughtful but harry reid did not promise any dramatic action on all of this. a sign that democrats on the hill still may be skiddish in some of these swing states that it could back fire on them if they push too hard on gun control. >> getting reaction from the gun lobby. what are we hearing from. >> they the nra said they think this was an assault on firearms by the president. they got personal today. they put out an ad that basically talked about the president's own daughters and the security they have at their school and suggested in their words the president was an elitist hypocrite. take a listen. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why see skeptical about putting armed security in their schools when they have armed guards at their school. jay carney immediately said this was completely out of bounds. he put out a statement most americans believe a president's childrens should not be used as pawns in the p
democrats. one happens to be the top democrat in the senate, harry reid. john avlon is looking into the majority leader's ties with the nra. the man the president would be relying upon to get something significant in terms of gun laws. he does pretty well with the nra. >> here is the deal about harry reid and guns. he opposed the assault weapons ban not once but twice in 1994 and 2004. he has a "b" rating from the nra. that's higher than ten other democrats. he has received money from the nra than any other senate member. >> a little love affair. he even appeared with wayne la pierre in 2010. but, he is a guy who says, you know, i'm gonna go with my party and go with the democratic party line. will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is not going to oppose the president. he is going to try to quarterback ter what he can. he is going to do what he can to move the ball forward. everything is on the table. here is the real deal. part of the pragmatism is a look at the election. arkansas, louisiana, month tan na, north carolina, south dakota. it will be interesting
proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back to you, no, over to you. neither one of them -- and this is what makes the nra's bizarre decision that they did today, the risk -- right now, harry re reid's the best friend they've got, and if they figure out a way to alienate senate democrats who have carried their water before with the stunt they pulled today with this bizarre web ad, they are going to live to regret it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either side wanted to engage in during the presidential campaign. we just went through a two-year campaign, where e
harry reid stopped short of embracing president obama's proposal calling them thoughtful recommendations. is the president's tone contributing to a lack of bipartisanship? >> no. i don't think this is about his tone. i think it is interesting to have a republican senator calling president obama combative given the nature of in congress and how the senate has blocked and pushed them into a corner. i think there is some room for the president to reach out to members of congress more, build those relationships more. have one-on-one meetings with them, do golfing with them, but we have to keep in mind that when we came into office, his leadership style was consensus. that is at the heart of this man. what is unfortunately happened, republicans have said, we're not going to come to the take and participate. we're going block and be the party of no. so you have to go to executive actions or executive orders. that is not how government should work. hopefully they will... ford, you know that the republicans have blocked everything. he has at the point where he has to take executive actions. >> a
whether the chuck schumer, harry reid budget could pass the senate, even with just democratic votes because you have so many people that are up for reelection that are going to be very reluctant to stick their necks out and vote. by the way, as you know, we just had a $600 billion tax increase in the fiscal cliff negotiations. plus, we had $520 billion of new taxes from obamacare. this would be the third tax increase. melissa: i really hope you're right because i feel their is a tide of higher taxes. its role in norway. it will keep all of us out to see no matter what our income bracket because it seems like before this last deal there was this notion that if republicans just gave in and went ahead with some higher taxes that then we could get down to the business of spending cuts. that was the idea that was out there. take your medicine now and then we will get down to the business of cutting spending once we have this out of the way. instead, it has been quite the opposite. this was just the first up. the camel's nose in a tent. now there are many more higher taxes coming. are you
at least that harry reid is not going to make his democrats who are up in 2014 walk the plank on a tough gun vote. so the house guys are saying look, we'll take it up when reid passes it knowing full well there's a small chance that larry reedye harry reid is going to pass a robust bill. if you saw some of the comments this past week from senators like max baucus, mary landrieu, mark begich who are up next year, you see why a lot of the house republicans are sort of smiling and saying we'll take it up when it comes over from the senate, wink, wink. >> gene, i guess it's going to be quite a while before i download profiles of courage volume 2 from the united states senate? >> i think it's going to be a while. look, it's been a month since newtown. and i think it's -- i think you make the case, it's unconscionable to do nothing, right, until the next newtown. i think there's a resonance out in the country. i think people get that this is something we really need to address and get it on an emotional level. but no, you're not going to be reading the updated profiles in courage out of the se
leader harry reid will try to engage the senate. in a statement yesterday reid wrote "i am committed to insuring that the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year." the success of the president's proposals, especially a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, rests largely in the hands of the upper chamber. dan gross, the president of the brady campaign, says nothing will happen in either chamber without public pressure. >> there's an extraordinary disconnect between what the american public wants, including gun owners and nra members, and what our elected officials are doing about it. it is going to be up to us, the american public, to close that disconnect. >> republicans seem intent on digging in their heels while president obama is back to the strategy of enlisting the american people to move policy. at least the deja vu is happening on both sides of the aisle. glen thrush, animal of washington, denizan of the beltway. actually -- >> not actually. >> as is usual, you have a really interes
are the guys who have to lead. they have got to get nancy pelosi and harry reid to bring along democrats, and we've -- >> harry reid is tough on this. he's pretty pro gun. >> well, he's going to have to listen to his constituents. i think he will. i think you're going to find in all of these places, when i talk to people around the country, there's just enough is enough. you see people who have been big gun rights advocates all of a sudden saying, well, we can't keep doing this. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> coming up, manti te'o's, a twitter war for the record books and for the ridiculist. ♪ you know my heart burns for you... ♪ i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> time now for the ridiculist. tonight, we're adding the twitter war between donald trump and deadspin. this week, deadspin broke the story about the notre dame linebacker who had a fake girlfriend, and trump was apparently imp pressed. he tweeted th
on this, on the floor of the united states senate, but i don't think that senator harry reid even brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states were the president received fewer than 42% of the votes. and he doesn't want his democrats to have to choose between their own constituents and the president's positions. >> what about immigration? seems too me that is something in the interest of the republican party that you-all would like to see get passed, some kind of immigration reform. will that happen this year? >> i mean, i'm child of immigrants. that is the history of this country. immigration is good and important for our country. legal immigration needs to really be modernized. marco rubio is working on that we need to find ways. we are educating so many people and then telling them to leave the country who are from other countries, go back, with he don't want you here. we have issues of labor that we need additional labor. we need to deal with immigration and i think we will, candy. >> quickly, you're on the committee that will list
to the house. harry reid said he won't bring anything forward in the upper chamber that he doesn't think will pass the house as well. ainsley? >> peter doocy live for us in washington. >>> the president's proposal a big talker this morning. that's what florida senator marco rubio is discussing. >> telling bill o'reilly what problems he sees with the president's plan and why he doesn't think the plan won't work. >> it doesn't work pore nanfor y of the reasons you pointed out in the talking points memo. washington, d.c. had a similar gun ban. violent crime and murder sky rocketed in washington during the time of the bans. i am a concealed weapons permit in florida. i had to have a background check and be finger printed. >> you don't object to registering the gun, you don't object to background check on you. >> sure. that's the law in florida. we have something called 2010 life. if a crime is committed in position of a gun it's mandatory 10 years. if you use that gun you are away for life even the first time you commit that. what's happened is these criminals that use guns are in jail. >> r
the president and joe biden are giving crystal vases but with obama seated with harry reid and speaker boehner, i half expect a food taster present but joking aside, they will be collegial, that is expected. >> senator schumer joked he and his inaugural co-chairman will be sitting between be to keep it simple but he said for the sake of the nation he hopes the two parties find a way to develop a better recentship in the years ahead. >> that tunnel ordeal was a mess, i heard they did not even print purple tickets this time. >> they retired the purple ticket after what happened in 2009. >> battery fire on a japan airlines 787, two weeks ago was not caused by overcharging. the national transportation safety board said there could be problems with wiring. the f.a.a. in the united states and many other countries grounded the boeing 787 dreamliner until they get answers. the plane relies more or electrical system than older aircraft. still ahead, a look back at the president's first term with a look ahead toward what could come next. first we will try to put together what happened at the end of the
a budget in three years. the reason why the democrats have control of the senate is that harry reid has said democratic senators in the witness protection program with ever -- whenever budget issues come up. twenty democrats are up for election in 2014. half of them should not be coming back of the continue to vote with obama on tax and spend crazy debt policies which is what they have been doing. i think it is very important for the american people to see what the senate has not done and to force them to act but that. gerri: you sure can't act -- argue with that. the senate has not passed a budget and 1,361 days. let me get a comment. it would stop pay to members of congress if they don't do some of these things, if they don't get a budget resolution. you in favor of that? >> i think it's a good idea for two reasons. senators have not been doing democratic leaders have not been doing their job for a long time. they should not get paid. if they're not willing to do it, the senate should vote them out of positions. also, it gives the attention of average americans who don't know if they
the road with the president's supreme court picks? >> what of the talk of harry reid, the majority leader in the senate, possibly getting rid of the filibustir, the sole tool to stop a vote on certain matters? it is not clear what matters would be -- he would be getting rid of the filibuster on? >> this has been in discussion. it could be a very minor change to the filibuster, versus something major. so i think eye am inclined-- the reason that harry reid is so other than ked, it has stopped business in the senate. they want to be able to bring bills up and to have the filibuster be used for things it's meant to be used for and for people to filibuster, not threat tone filibuster and gum up the gears of the senate. >> speaking of gear, let's change gears to the speech tomorrow while we have you. charles, what about this message that he is going to bring -- how tough will it be for president obama to knock down president obama the first time and to still touch chords that raise the country up as his aides seem to say he is going to do tomorrow. >> within a week of this inaugural, he said p
. >> listen, harry reid, remember when john boehner was going to bring the vote to the house and he didn't have the votes after he'd said i'm going to bring the vote to the house. i have a suspicion that harry reid wouldn't bring it to the senate floor until they're sure it's a done deal. there's something important to understand here, too, besides additional taxes. we've already raised taxes on people making over $450,000 a year and just about everyone else because payroll taxes went up and everyone's paycheck is smaller, if you haven't looked be, check out your paycheck, but obamacare, raised taxes on everyone obamacare and taxes go higher and the democrats seem willing to continue that trend. stuart: i'm shocked that higher taxes are coming down. actually, no, i'm not. i expected it. i've got to talk to you about hollywood. i'm sure you're watching football yesterday and i certainly was and saw the trailers for the violent movies. >> bullet, die-hard-- put to the head. stuart: wait a second, you know more about this than i do. if i'm the not mistaken, not a single one of those proposa
a look at that. not all democrats frankly are anxious for a gun control debate. harry reid says he won't ask members of the senate to vote on anything that can't pass the house. vice president biden says it's going to be a tough fight. >> i have no illusions what we're up against or how hard the task is in front of us, but i've never seen the nation's conscience so shaken by what happened at sandy hook. the world has changed and it is demanding action. >> reporter: national rifle association accused the president and vice president of attacking firearms. >> thank you. proposals and action are two very different things especially when it comes to congress and gun control. up next, we'll take a look at the politics that will play a part in this fight. plus, nasty weather, i mean nasty weather causing very big problems from new england all the way down to dixie. what do you think about snow in the south? the extreme south, an update from the fox extreme weather center is coming up. by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition
have the senate. go ahead, harry reid, bring it up for a vote. are you in favor of all president obama's recommendations? pass it through the senate first and let the house do it. that would be interesting if he does that. i think he was an nra backed candidate, too,be if i'm not mistaken. >> greg: do i have time to throw to the sot? we're doing it in the next block? great to be back. >> dana: people talking to you in your head. >> greg: it's happening again. i have to get out of here. coming up, should a reality show that features one father who has 11 kids with ten different women called beckel be on television? we told you about --be go ahead. >> two boys, you know, take responsibility. you can hate all you want to. i didn't ask for it. i just happened. >> greg: we told you about "all my babies' mommas" last weekbe but the network changed its mind about the show. tragically. we'll tell you what they have planned ahead. ♪ ♪ are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we gi
from congress, a decidedly less than responsive . senate majority leader harry reid said of the assault weapons ban, we will do what we thinking it through the house. for the house part, speaker responded by saying of the senate passes a bill, will look at it. the national rifle association responded to the president's announcement with the statement, attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation, only honest law-abiding gun owners will be affected, and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy. despite the president's statement that today's event was all about protecting america's youth, there is little question that no one or any combination of his executive orders would do as much to protect schoolchildren as the nra proposal to place armed guards and all of our schools, a recommendation that most on the left and in the national media initially tried to who down. a proposal that elicited a skeptical response from the president himself, but which is now beginning brought up momentum. a new ad accuses the pre
to do a budget. harry reid and patty she said i'm the chairman of the committee and the jimmy buffet song, if the phone doesn't ring, it must be me. waiting-- >> one of the observations i had today and i thought my colleague charles krauthammer had a good point. obama laid down the gauntlet gave the most liberal partisan speech i can think of in our lifetime. now, and almost he wants to destroy or wipe out the reagan legacy or reaganism with massive big government, social engineering. do you think he'll be successful in this term accomplishing that? >> well, that's our job in the house, to stop this. and think about sort of the outrageous language in the president's speech today. when he wants it talk about social justice, well, darn it, a job is the ultimate social justice. and yet, the policies of this administration have crushed the ability to expand this, this economy. so, how do we now in the house start to use what leverage points we have to force the senate to finally engage in the process of doing what's right? and mr. waldon and i talked about it in the past i think the sena
, harry reid, who voted against a 1994 assault weapons ban says a new one can't pass congress. the west virginia democratic senator questioned the right to own assault weapons. now he says he's disappointed that the president didn't recommend the creation of the national commission on mass violence. the president of the nra wants the focus on the shooters. >> we need to find ways to get at the root causes of this kind of violence and key 20 round magazines out of the hands of the kinds of people who involve themselves in this kind of activity. they are invariably severely mentally ill. >> but the nra's resisting universal background checks. >> you can get a record of who owns firearms, the government could force them to sell them back to the government. that is basically confiscation. >> a more emotional debate, but not more agreement despite the massacre at the school. and america remains divided. a poll finds in the nra has not lost support since new town. 41% approval, 34% disapproval of the powerful gun lobby. >> still had tonight, baltimore city police department gets into the spir
for harry reid. he wants to keep the majority and republicans feel that democrats could overreach. this could be a political win for them. but the president will push very heart, no doubt about it. jon: he says he will push very hard. he promised that yesterday. he will do everything in necessary power to get things done. one of the things in his power is pick up the phone and call harry reid i need this out of the senate. i need to you approve this. >> that's right. the president will have to make some calls to these conservative-leaning democrats who will be on the fence. that is not something he did in his first term. he will have to really push this. this could be a win-win for the white house they ask for everything, don't get everything and blame congress for only getting a few things through. of course the house is not going to move anything until the senate does. democrats also say, the ones that want these gun control provisions, they have to move very quickly. senator patrick leahy will hold hearings. the momentum is clearly now in the aftermath of the tragedy in connect
. >> why does it seem harry reid is suddenly back tracking on fist filibuster reform. >> he is a man of the senate. russ feingold remember the real progressive members will tell you harry reid is a liberal guy. he's good. it is not that he doesn't want to open the door for getting things done but he truly is imbedded in this senate culture. >> in this system, this progresses. right? >> folks driving the reform tend to be the younger members. it's just a reality. >> anybody can look at the senate and know that et cetera broken. >> they are in a week position. this is a week position for them. >> for republicans? >> they lost two seats in a cycle where they should have won five or six. >> bill: right. >> a million.4. gerrymanned gerrymannedering is the only reason they kept the house. their marginalization is clear. the only thing they can do is secretly behind closed doors stop things from happening. we complete the cycle of 2012. >> which is why again i don't understand why harry reid doesn't see this is the moment to act on filibuster reform. we will
leader harry reid will present colleagues with options for reforming the senate blockbuster rules in the meetings today. another reporter says the majority leader signals he will push ahead with a supplemental spending package on hurricane sandy, the $50.5 billion supplemental package from last fall. is one of the holdovers from the 112th congress. harry reid will need unanimous consent from a publicans. watch the senate on c-span2. on c-span3, the inaugural prayer service. we take you live now to the house floor on c-span. the speaker: the house will be in order. the prayer will be offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. thank you fwod for giving us another -- god for giving us another day. the people's house gathers today after a day of celebrating the greatness of our american experiment of self-government, and as the administration gathers for a prayer even now at the national cathedral, we gather here. -- here to ask your blessing. the difficult work of governing now resumes. bless the members of this assembly with wisdom, patience, and good will
aren't the ones blocking this. the democrats aren't the ones -- >> speaker reid, harry reid, the leader of the senate, he's all on board for this, right? just want to make sure. >> i think leader reid is fine with it. in fact, they put out a statement supporting what the president did today. >> in two years, republicans and democrats are going to be measured at the ballot box. a lot is going to happen but the biggest thing that is going to happen is we're going to have time to see what works. not more false promises. >> nothing works, alex. >> is the president, for example, going to start enforcing the laws that we already have? his attorney general doesn't want -- >> cookie cutter -- >> why is the nra and its supporters so much more effective politically than the other side in dealing with this issue? >> poke be with me with a stick. money. >> why are there democrats -- and the antigun types, they have a lot of -- >> no, they are not. i'll give this to my republican friends. they are always better organized on the issues like this and they raise the money and the nra is effective in sc
's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change. the house, one of the things they need to do smarter is not see a plank and swim with sharks. let harry reid lead and see what they can do. i think the president will have a lot fewer followers than he thinks. >> harry reid is as able senate leader. i love seeing him lead. it's interesting that ari is counseling at least on tv counseling republicans not to lead. look, that's easy for the republicans. they used to say -- ari and i are both baseball fans. the house controlled by the republicans are where good ideas go to die and that's apparently what speaker boehner is being advised to do now. i think it's a terrible mistake. he could come and make deals and meet the president halfway but it looks like i think they are going to go back to their constructionism. that's not a good strategy. >> all right. we'
